Feedback on (my first) pc build of €800

Hello guys!

This is going to be my first build and I hope that with this build, I will have a reliable pc that will endure (without much problems) at least for the next 5 years.
I will use this pc for running software like Unity and some Blender. I will run multiple programs at the same time (that's why I have chosen for a R5 1600).
Also I would like to be able to run games like BF3 on Medium.

Here you can find the parts I've chosen:

What I really wonder is:
Will this PC be a reliable thing(even if I will try overclocking after like 4 years)?
Is this an overkill-build for my purpose?

Any feedback is appreciated!

    Your going to need 16GB of memory not 8 and the 550 watt PSU is lower priced.

    Those about make up for the extra memory price.

    Your also going to need more storage than just the 250GB SSD.

  2. Thanks for your response!
    However, the PSU you showed is not so cheap to get in the Netherlands :/
    And on top of that, I Prefer the MSI GPU for it's better performance.
    About the SSD: I don't think you're right in my case, since my laptop has the same SSD but I have 130GB free space remaining :)

  3. MSI dont have better performance.
    Yes you pay for a quality power supply to keep your system stable.
    If BF3 is about the only game you run then it's just about 30 GB so could be fine.
    You must not do much work in Unity and Blender because i have them on a 2TB drive along with MSV.

    I'm not planning to download lots of games so for that purpose it should be fine indeed.
    For all other stuff, I will see I if it is sufficient, I guess :)
    I think for the next three years or so, 250 GB will do, and later on it is luckily really easy to add more GB's!
